    "Variations on a Theme" for Wind Ensemble

    It's just another work-in-progress with a long way to go before completion but it's a start.

    I enjoy this piece. Very nice. Good use of GPO.

    That's a delightful piece. Jumping from majestic to frolicking and back. Echoes of Copland in the fast section (at 2/3 or so). Good sound, clear voices. I like it!

    Hi Mitch,
    Good job. How about an Irish name for †his?
    Was this mostly woodwinds in †he upper voices? I didn't detect trumpet sounds until the end. I sometimes find †he trumpets not coming out enough.

    Yes Gary, there are trumpets in there somewhere. Will have to take a closer look at my dynamics to see if there is something I can do to bring them out more.
